While not a common destination for travellers, Liberia has a wealth of warmth and culture to offer visitors. Thandeka curates trips here for philanthropists interested in investing in effective education and healthcare systems for the 4 millions souls that are often left short of necessary resources. Here, we focus on understanding the challenging post-war context and how we can partner with local organizations to support job creation and re-integrate the 60% of children that are currently left out of school. We explore the capital of Monrovia as well as the natural beautiful landscape of rural rain forests!
When to go: November - May
“It’s always been ‘us’ and ‘them’. What makes people think we’re so different? Even if my skin is black, and yours is white, we both bleed red. There is a common thread of humanity that connects all of us. Let’s stop running away from it and start talking about it. Sharing meals with new friends at Thandeka opens a raw and honest dialogue. One that, while not forgetting the painful past, focuses on a brighter future.”
